Kate Lush Band
Kate is one of Australia’s most outstanding Blues & Soul vocalists. Gritty, soulful & straight from the heart. Think Susan Tedeschi, Sara Bareilles with a dash of Aretha’s Soul & Bonnie Raitt’s harder rock edge. Great original songs, an outstanding band, and that is Kate Lush. Be prepared to be blown away!
There’s an infectious joy that comes out of Kate’s music. “It’s heart and soul on a stick. For me it was love at first hear. It kicks arse from track #1. Kate sings the shyte out of every song, the band seriously cooks & the production & arrangements are masterful. If it was a recipe it would be high end 5 star stuff. Make no mistake, this is something special on a number of levels. “Love it!” Mike Drayson – Sydney’s 2SM on the Wild Captain Radio Tour. Bernard Zuel (SMH – Short List Review) “In this crisp, clean and punchy sounding shortish album, old school Kate Lush makes a quick and assured entry into the field of soulful blues.
Kate’s first & second albums “Don’t Wait Too Long’ & “The Wild Captain Radio Tour’ have won numerous awards in Australia & the U.S. Her third & most recent self titled Blues album has just won the Australian Blues Chain award for Best New Talent of 2016. Her first, earned Best International in the Songwriters Assoc. of Washington (U.S.), Best Female in the Int. Acoustic Music Awards (U.S.) and the Aust. Songwriters Assoc. awarded her their coveted Rudy Brandsma Award for Excellence in Songwriting.
With a touted U.S. tour on the horizon, her songs hitting the top of the Blues charts, festival bookings for Girrakool, Winter Blues, Mitchell Creek & Thredbo as well as a new album on its way, 2016 is looking to be a big year for Kate who is turning more than a few heads & is certainly one to get out & see live.
